The Two Martyrs

In my School, Broke the News

Whispers began and the quiz

Unfazed, and Committed

Heard the Heroes, Braving the bullets

 

Just Two, Housed in the four walls

Too mighty, for Indian state to bear

In thousands, the coward Army

Distantly, bangs the homes

 

Women, men and children,

Young, Old in Unison

Fearlessly, Rushed to battle field

Calling, The Hero shall not go alone

 

The Forcible Occupation

Defined by a million military men

The illiterate, Driven by blind nationalism

Stood weaker, before the youth of the vale

 

Martyrs, of Valour, of Courage

Till the last breath, Fought from the Front

Shot in the head, in chest, in face

Stained in Red, The Free minds, symbolic

 

Backbone has broken, the jingoists yelled

A repeat, when our brave hearts depart

Reborn, Regenerate and Ever Green, but they

Thrive our spirits, Till the Freedom shall come

 

 

Poet is a student at Govt. Girls Hr. Sec. School, Baramulla.
